So, apparently, in spite of Bono's threats to release the entire album on iTunes ahead of time and all, "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb" still leaked to the web. In response to the situation, the band started streaming the album through MTV.com and VH1.com... In all honesty, I don't think the leak will hurt them a bit. I personally can't wait to get my copy and to see them live for the third time!
Jon Brion is one of those happy discoveries that makes you feel that there is SO MUCH more music out there that you haven't heard about. He has released two great albums so far in 2004. The most recent one is the score of the movie "I Heart Huckabees". Earlier in 2004, he released the soundtrack to "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". Both are equally impressive works, reminding of Lennon and McCartney more than once, but without ever loosing originality. Once more, I feel like I've struck musical gold... YEEEEHAAAWW!!! :)

Finally, after a while of writing, I broke today the 900-review mark in Amazon. I am now sitting at #91 among all of Amazon's reviewers, which is something that goes up and down, so that's not something I am looking too much into.
Ironic how slammed I am getting hit with my 2-star review of Seal's selling out... er, Best of. ;)
Anyway. Just thought I'd share. See y'all.

Quoting from Amazon’s review about the new Gwen Stefani album:
“With this project, she has enlisted some of the biggest names in music (Dr. Dre, Eve, The Neptunes, Andre 3000, Nellee Hooper, Dallas Austin, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Linda Perry and Tony Kanal) to create a genre bending masterpiece that is guaranteed to be one of the most talked about records of this year (2004) and beyond.”

I just saw the trailer for "Revenge of the Sith", the aptly titled Episode III of the Star Wars saga. It's jawdropping... Loved it!
I will enjoy it tomorrow again, as I go to the opening of The Incredibles here.
It's been a few days since I last posted here. Lots of work and events at home: Santiago has been sick again. Plus two nights ago, it was coverage of the Election until very late, and waking up early to find whether the OH ballot counting had been completed and the winner had been announced. No such thing (until later in the day, yestarday), but by now George W. Bush has been officially declared winner of the election. Behind is a long and exhausting campaign where many things were said. A campaign that got many people to get up an go vote, resulting in an unprecedented turnout (a good thing!) Ahead lie four more years with W, with a strengthened Republican congress. However, forget not (in the spirit of Yoda's talk) that the country divided is... and this time, many, many more people came to vote, so be not indifferent to this division, and make sure respect and tolerance for other people's opinions are ever present in any decisions made.
On a "side" note, I ran into this article on BBC News, where different world leaders responded to Bush's reelection. This is the "folkloric" comment made by the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Jesus Perez:
"We will hope that in this second mandate we can improve our relations.
We are dancing the tango. When you are dancing the tango and your toe is stepped on, hurting your toe, you complain. If it is stepped on harder, you complain again. There's a whole game, but we are prepared to continue dancing the tango."
